Lately I have had a lot of people ask me what the meaning of the word Natuur is, and how do you properly pronouce it?
I was born in the Netherlands, which is also known as Holland which means I am dutch!
A bit of background..
Natuur Candles evolved because I wanted to start introducing cleaner, eco-friendly, non-toxic products into our family household. I have had a love for all-things candles since I was young. About ten years ago, I was looking to start a new hobby, naturally I decided making my own candles would be a fun idea! Years later, when I decided to start a business with my passion for candles, I needed a business name.
The foundation for Natuur Candles was clean, eco-friendly, non-toxic soywax, lead-free wicks and a luxury candle that I would be proud to share with my family and friends. This is where the word "Natuur" came into play. Natuur (pronouced, "nah-tour") is the word for nature in Dutch.
So, together with my love for candles, nature and my dutch background Natuur seemed to a natural fit.
